About BOSS Waza Craft

BOSS Waza Craft Pedals are premium versions of classic analog BOSS pedals. The Waza Craft series have been aptly named as the term Waza means "art" and "technique" in Japan. Aiming to give fine guitar sounds and exceptional tone, these pedals are made in Japan to a great build quality. Built by a specialist team of engineers, time and effort to test and select each component within the pedals have taken place to ensure better sounding pedals.

BOSS Waza Craft isn't just modified versions of popular BOSS pedals. At BOSS their design and craftsmanship have used an official, complete redesign of original circuits by the original developers. Achieving Waza Craft reissued versions of many of their highly popular models, such as the Metal Zone, Blues Driver, Chorus and Delay. It's impressive that a big brand like BOSS can achieve boutique-level quality, like they did with the Waza series. All these pedals have great sound and features just like the standard mode BOSS models but now have improvements such as slightly more gain, better touch response or frequency range. For example the SD-W1 overdrive pedal features an extra 2 way switch control to choose between S/C mode, to gain more low ends with one flip of the switch. The Waza Craft pedals also have reduced noise when playing through due to their refined circuitry.

The BOSS Waza Craft pedals have a compact and appealing look. Easily recognizable with redefined design including silver plates, engraved serial numbers, silver screws and The Waza Craft logo clearly displayed on the footswitch. Details are important to this brand in quality and even in aesthetics and it shows.
